Virginia Creeper

Parthenocissus quinquefolia

Description:

Climbs over walls, up trees, etc. Hardy plant, fast grower, most people consider it an invasive species. Interesting detail: Virginia Creeper secures new sections by extending little "feet" tipped with sticky pads and cementing itself to the wall. Hope you can see them ...

Notes:

While these photos are not all of the same plant, they were all taken one afternoon on a short block of abandoned businesses.
